This is like deja vu, because we already did an article about Futurama cancellation way back when Fox cancelled Futurama, but then again, it was picked up and living for three more seasons on Comedy Central, but now, Comedy Central announces that Futurama is cancelled and will end its run on the comedy oriented cabler after season seven concludes.

We are reviewing all the cancelled shows and renewed shows of 2011.
What happens when a show is cancelled but audiences are raving about it. Well, most times nothing much happens; but in the case of Futurama the show got rescued from another network. Comedy Central resurfaced Futurama and gave it a 26 episode run (13 yet to air), but now Comedy Central renewed Futurama for 2 more years. It´s still to be announced if this will be season seven or seasons eight and nine, since Comedy Central tends to divide each season in two years.
That´s what I call a Phoenix show that rebirthed from its ashes. But we can simply call it, awesome news.
Futurama gets renewed for two more years by Comedy Central, and adding that to the already year to come in the makings, to start airing in June, we´ll have Futurama up until 2013.
Well, it´s time to hit the comments and tell me if you are happy Futurama got renewed for two more years or not. Will you watch the seasons to come? Let me know. And as always, remember you can follow me on Twitter to know more cancelled and renewed shows as Futurama scoop.
Futurama For The Win!
Ok, sometimes good things happen. Albeit Pushing Daisies was cancelled, My name is Earl was cancelled, and many more huge shows were cancelled this year. But, the one that comes back is Futurama!
Comedy Central ordered 26 new episodes of Futurama, and that´s great news.
That is Two new seasons of Futurama to air
Bender is back! “Futurama” creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen are working on the new series as we speak, with an estimated spring 2010 air date.
We have wonder-network “Comedy Central” to thank for the resurrection of this cult show. They were happy with the purchase of the rights to air the original episodes of the show, which performed decently, and feel that new episodes (26 in total, to start with) will not only reinvigorate the core fans of the show, but will also bring in new fans of the series.
The four feature-length original “Futurama” specials: “Bender’s Big Score,” “The Beast With a Billion Backs,” “Bender’s Game” and “Into the Wild Green Yonder,” have performed well on DVD and ratings-wise on Comedy Central.
Reuters also report that all of the original voice cast members are expected to return for the new episodes, along with the core writing team. The episodes are expected to continue on from the end of “Into the Wild Green Yonder”.
We will keep you updated with the latest news on the new episodes as it becomes available.
Are you happy that Futurama is back?
